    We investigate potential benefits of exploiting a global impact ordering in a selective search architecture. We propose a generalized, ordering-aware version of the learning-to-rank-resources framework [9] along with a modified selection strategy. By allowing partial shard processing we are able to achieve a better initial trade-off between query cost and precision than the current state of the art. Thus, our solution is suitable for increasing query throughput during periods of peak load or in low-resource systems.
